Stories from Belarus
Teams working in Belarus will partner with orphanages and children’s prisons to run arts & crafts camps, sports camps, & educational training. Ensuring the children have proper counseling & mentoring is a key component of any Zest4Kidz camp. These camps help us build and maintain relationships with the children in the hopes that they will enter our Zest4Kidz Mentoring Program.
“Leanna was left in a pawn brokers in exchange for alcohol by her mother at age 4. She cried evry night waking saying no one loved her or cared for her. She wet the bed and suffered from depression. At age 7 I visited her spent about 4 hours with her and told her I loved her, I explained how God loves her and even though she might feel lonely God would always love her and would never leave her. Two days later we heard Leanna was waking but not wetting the bed, she told the director of the orphanage that she was OK “Because a man came here yesterday and told me he loved me, he hugged and me and said God loves me and will never leave me alone.” Leanna changed the orphange she lived in by reassuring all the other boys and girls in the same way.”
